Enhance Windows 11 Security with Password-Free Microsoft Authenticator

Windows 11 now allows password-free login for a simpler, more secure experience. Users can set this up using the Microsoft Authenticator app: install it on a smartphone, sign in with a Microsoft account, adjust PC security settings, enable password-free account access, and confirm identity via smartphone notification. Alternatives include Windows Hello for biometric authentication and FIDO passkeys, which utilize biometrics for login and ensure cross-device compatibility.
